Mike Snell, who comments here often and blogs as The Wine Commonsewer, has written with the horrible news that frequent Hit & Run presence Bill Kalles ("No Star") was in a terrible motorcycle accident this weekend. The wreck took the life of his 12-year-old daughter and he remains in serious condition. Snell has thoughts here.

The staff of reason sends its deepest condolences to Bill and his family—and our hopes for a speedy and full recovery.
